631.44 RECOGNIZANCE TO KEEP PEACE.

When a person is convicted of an offense not punishable by imprisonment in the Minnesota Correctional Facility-Stillwater or county jail, the sentencing court may require the person to recognize, to keep the peace and be of good behavior for a term of not more than two years. The court may require the person to be detained in custody until that person agrees to recognize. The recognizance is in addition to the punishment prescribed by law. It must be with sufficient sureties and in a reasonable sum.
